AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

Finally came in and got around to installing it a couple weeks ago. Installation was a breeze. I love the intake. The GC finally sounds more like a turbo diesel. The intake noise is cool, but not obnoxious. It can be drowned out fairly easily with the radio volume.

Pay no attention to the muddy engine bay.

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

Sound is cool...so...how does it run? I would love to know what your before/after map pressures are at idle. Mine idles at -2.4 psi of boost with a stock airbox.

I'm a little leary of using a less efficient filter. The stock paper filters have been shown to do a better job of filtering than oiled cotton gauze. Maybe AFE uses something better than the junk K&N sells?

Also, I wonder why AFE didn't create a box that connects to the CAI intake in the front instead of pulling hot air like they do?

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

I would be worried about water ingestion.
A diesel needs to have a snorkel to guard against it and needs to get fresh air unpolluted by dust or dirt
From the photo you get lots of mud dust, water etc.

Good luck but I am waiting for a seal system snorkel under development in Australia

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

For a completely stock air box at idle I reviewed my boost psi and found some surprising variation from run to run...
with a minimum of -2.32psi then -2.22 psi and -1.88psi.. all quite similar ambient conditions...
So it may be difficult to see any changes with less restriction on the induction.

I'll watch mine to see if its as variable as yours. I read somewhere that there is a throttle plate of some type on modern diesels...depending on sensor location, this could cause a variable vacuum at idle.

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

I plan on having this put on with before/after dyno...there's a tuning shop right up the road from me, and they want to do some tuning and maybe exhaust. They do all Corsa's dyno tuning during R&D, and are interested in doing intake/exhaust/tune and look at the turbo. I trust them, I know several guys who work there. In fact they had done an Aventador tune/exhaust and had to have a Lambo engineer come from Italy to watch them. Then the guy had them put it back to stock and bought a Mclaren P1. $50k for tune/exhaust and back to stock. Even with the DPF, I think we could see some modest gains in MPG's with the right air improvement

If I get water up that high, I have more than just water ingestion to worry about. A splash of water or mud isn't going to hurt anything. I've been running open element filters for 15 years and have never had hydrolock. That said, I may buy a pre-filter element, just to help keep the filter cleaner, longer.

I'd buy an oiled foam prefilter just to get the "free flow" gauze filter to works as good as a paper filter. I haven't found a washable gauze type filter element that actually filters as well as a paper element yet. Oiled foam works good though.

The Bluespark tuner on the highest setting is (if they aren't exaggerating at 317 hp) over 100hp per liter...that's pretty much "beast mode" in the stock form of this little motor. My 7.3 liter diesel would make 771 HP at that rate. It doesn't and it has exhaust, intake, injectors, and turbo upgrades.

I suspect hardware would need upgrading to support much over the current gains that are possible. I think the fuel system is the limiting factor...maybe the turbo too.

Re: AFE ecodiesel intake..yay.

I hav a cummins and help develop the efi for the 5.9s 06-07.

With efi live its not about dyno numbers which 99% of the tuner companies advertise. Its about usable power in the real world or should i say driving/driver specific. U can tune it based on your life style and environment vs a generic program. Which before was more than enough for me till i discovered efi.
